So seeing as though I’ve never even repaired a puncture before, I thought I should start learning how to look after and fix my bike.
I hadn’t realised, but there are many courses that are subsidised by local councils.
I attended one in Islington, run by Islington Cyclist Action Group: http://www.icag.org.uk/events/maintenance-workshop/
For only £1 it was a great way to learn the basics.
I’ve still loads more to learn, so I’m going to attend a course (MV3150 level 1), this time a little closer to home, in Hammersmith:
Wish me luck!!
